Mouse & Dragon and learning new things
Mouse & Dragon by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller is part of the Liaden Universe series. I love this universe but it is disconcerting to wait for the new volumes in this series because the frame of reference shifts between generations and I was a little disturbed to realize that I had forgotten reading this one last year! The current story arc centers on Theo Waitley and started with Fledgling but that one did not immediately remind the reader of the complexities of the venerable Korval clan so I am afraid that I am going to have to look for Saltation (the second in the series) and re-read it in light of the subsequent volumes because I probably underrated it at the time because I was so frustrated. I have renewed my acquaintance with the series because I have just read Ghost Ship and realize that I am going to have to make time to start the entire series over again so that I can orient myself! Perhaps I will take my time so that the next volume in the series is about to be published by then because it is so frustrating to wait for what happens next!
I attended a seminar on affiliate marketing and have taken the plunge to add the Amazon widget to the blog. It's like learning an entire new language to expand past just writing the blog, scary to wade through all of the arcane code and figure out exactly what is being offered. Now, if only I could figure out how to customize this to feature the book(s) that I am actually talking about! Hopefully everyone will have patience while I work my way through the process.
